The know-how of the world N°1

• Wide area, accurate fingerprint sensor, for high definition 
fingerprint image acquisition
• The MA 500+ terminals offer the highest level of security on
the market 
• Fast: 0.7 sec in authentication mode and 0.9 sec in 1:1000
identification mode (including detection, coding and   
• Accurate: depending on the required level of security, the 
false acceptance rate (FAR) can be configured down to 10-8

Powerful capabilities in a small package
